The verse riff features some steady 8th note strumming using palm muted power chords. First we have 2 bars of G, 1 bar of C, then 1 bar of E. Next is 2 bars of G, 1 bar of C, then 2 bars of D leading into the pre-chorus. Note the accents you play on the 1 and the "and-of-2", giving the part some cool shape and motion.

The intro and re-intro stays on the first half of the verse riff during all the spoken word stuff. The role of the guitar here is to provide and steady and consistent bed for the vocal.
